London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust welcomes applications from people who wish to work part time or flexibly.

The post holder will work as a member of the Rheumatology team with F1 trainees, SHOs, ST registrars and with the consultant staff in an exciting opportunity to ensure high quality care of rheumatology and medical patients. The rheumatology team is responsible for care of patients on Clarke Ward, Edison Ward, and some on outlying wards and the acute floor.

All emergency medical admissions to the Hospital are admitted through the Acute Assessment Unit (AAU). After initial assessment and treatment, patients will either be admitted to a Specialty Medical Ward if they are thought to have a length of stay of greater than three days, or remain on the AAU if their LOS is less than three days. We have ten Consultant Physicians who specialise in Acute Medicine to facilitate the running of the AAU.

There will also be some responsibilities on medical Emergency Ambulatory Care and it is expected that the post holder will contribute to rheumatology clinics in a predominantly supernumerary manner. Rheumatology general and sub-specialty clinics take place in Northwick Park, including early arthritis, connective tissue disease, metabolic bone disease, injection clinics, and ankylosing spondylitis clinic.

There may be an opportunity for the post holder to be on the medical SpR rota (two SpRs on duty out-of-hours with a split responsibility for acute take and wards/HDU). This would attract a banding supplement. Acute takes in Northwick Park are well supported through junior doctor staffing and consultant input, and reflect the varying population of Brent and Harrow.

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We promote the wellbeing and safety of all our patients and carers by acting promptly on concerns, communicating effectively and sharing information appropriately, according to the standards determined by our policy and procedures. All posts working with vulnerable groups will be subject to an enhanced criminal records check upon appointment and staff will need to give their consent for the Trust to receive regular updates on their criminal records status throughout their employment.

Due to the high volumes of applications we receive for certain posts, we reserve the right to close any adverts before the published closing date once we have received a sufficient number of applications. After the closing date we strongly advise you check the email account which is registered. If you have not heard from us within four weeks of the closing date, please assume that you have not been shortlisted.

Our employment checking processes require that all shortlisted applicants provide the contact details of their current HR Department. If shortlisted you will be sent an email reminder to present the contact details of your HR Department at the interview.

Please note the Trust uses identity checking software for verifying the authenticity of identity documents provided by candidates.

Please note, as per updated UKVI guidelines, from April 2017 candidates appointed to any role that we are able to request sponsorship for a Tier 2 (general) visa will be required to provide an overseas criminal record certificate for themselves and any adult dependents from each country that they have lived in consecutively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Further information on obtaining the criminal record check for time spent abroad can be found on the website.

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
